I was commissioned to make this box to display a collection of very nice pocket knives. It is made of quarter sawn sycamore and lacewood. It was a fun project with some interesting challenges. This was almost entirely done with handtools.

Here is a video that shows all it’s features.

That is extremely nice. Love the shaping on the shaping on the insert and handle. The side drawer is great, too.

Thank you everyone!

Rick I agree about the thumbnail. I didnt think I could change the order of the pics after the fact, but I could.
